Which is better to use? The Contractor's Mix or the Sun and Shade Mix?

Asked by Evan August 19, 2020
3
Answers

I've used both. The Sun and Shade Mix is better. The Contractors Mix has more annual seed. Annual seed grows for one year then dies. Perennial grass grows back year after year. Look at the seed content listed on the both and you will see the Sun and Shade Mix has a higher percentage of perennial grass. Good Luck.

Any grass seed is safe for dogs, however I would like to keep the dogs off the area until it is established. Their foot traffic alone is enough to kill the new seedlings.

Filled with tall fescue (or some other grassy weed?)
This grass looks nice until you realize what it's growing. It's more than half of chunky, lime-green, fast-growing unmanageable tall fescue (I believe that's what it is at least... which is different than the fine fescue advertised on the packaging). Not good for your everyday backyard. I don't know yet if I'm seeing this issue with Scott's other type of grass seed mix that I'm trying, but it seems better so far...

When grass is newly germinated it is immature and will have a different color and texture than established grass. Regular mowing and fertilizing will help it mature to its proper color and texture. We want you to be confident in our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers. At your earliest convenience, please contact us and refer to your review to see what can be done. We can be reached at 877-220-3089. Scotts
not the best seeds
I wish i read most of the reviews before buying this bag. Just like most people report you get grass that has the has an appearance to that of crab grass that is now all over my yard. I have started to pull them but they are so many. For $40 of this bag Scotts really need to consider pulling it off shelf

Too many tall grass
Customer review from scotts.com logo
I bought this product and over seeds my lawn hoping for thicker lawn. Now my lawn has too many of grass that has bigger blades. This type of grass grow taller, faster and stand out so obviously with light brighter green. This really ruins my even drank green looking lawn. Please see in the attached picture. I have seen other reviews mentioned this problem but no solution to it. Is there a way, a chemical, a solution to get rid of this kind of grass without to dig out my entire lawn?

I have two large dogs that play and tear my yard up. After a decent snow this winter I decided to start over. So I turned my dirt (I barely had any grass) and dropped some organic fertilizer (also at home depot and pet friendly). I spread the Scotts contractors mix pretty evenly covering the entire yard. The results were really good .. I must admit much better than some of the higher priced grass seed I've purchased in the past. Lots of grass, not to many weeds and it only took about month. I still have some patches, where the dogs drop daily as soon as they walk out the door .. but rest of the yard filled in nicely .. for the money, I'd use this product again ..

Lots of crabgrass.... I used the product when I seeded an entire bare lawn on our new house because my dad had really good luck with his yard just 20 minutes away from where I live. I thought I was getting really good and fast results until I realized that most of my yard was all crabgrass. Since crabgrass dies off yearly my yard has a ton of dead spots in it now that everything is turning green again. I have already added a crabgrass preventer to hopefully stop more of this from coming in and I will try to re-seed in a couple months with better results hopefully....
